St Mura's Cross is located in an ancient monastic site in Fahan, County Donegal. This rare 'slab' type cross is generally believed to be the precursor to the typical Celtic High crosses associated with Ireland. St Mura lived in the 6th century and was a relative and disciple of St Columba.

The Sikhote-Alin was one of the most spectacular meteorite falls in recorded history. Falling February 12, 1947, during daylight, the fireball was seen and heard for over 200 miles by many witnesses. It left a trail of smoke and dust 20 miles long.

When the descending group of meteorites reached an altitude of about 3.5 miles, the largest mass apparently broke up in an explosion. This was an exceptionally low altitude for such an event, about half the altitude at which passenger jets fly.
